for the best

possibility of regret

faint chance in there somewhere

that maybe I wasn’t good enough

for her

we’d met up had a few drinks

a fairly decent meal

that I stuck my hand in my pocket

paid for

went back to mine played a few songs

mooched on the sofa some

made it to my rickety bed

& there we draw the veil

I woke up in the morning she was dressed

I’m off

I’ll call you later ok?

but she never did

I did call her to no answer

left messages for no reply to come

& after a few days I gave that up

as just one more that did not work out

& at the end of the week changing the sheets

I found her underwear under the bed

threw them into the wash

thinking that’s what was needed to do

for the best
